overhead consoles........
 
heys fellas.......
I appreciate your time first of all.I just have a pretty simple/stupid question for ya.I'm thinking of putting in a overhead console.I found one on E Bay and am hoping I win it.So heres my question.......I have an 05 1500 5.7.It's pretty much a bare bones edition minus the mods I've done( fogs,CAI etc) The truck was prewired for fogs and also has an ambient air temp sensor on the front.What are the odds that I might find a prewired harness for an overhead console under the roof lining? I was reading on a Cherokee forum that if Jeep your came with fogs,theres a high probability you have the harness for OTIS/EVIC etc.Do Rams follow the same basic concept ya think?Is there a way to find out w/out taking down my roof lining and pillars out.What might I be lookng for if that's if I have to go that route?Sorry if I sound dumb but I don't know and the only way to find out is sound dumb.......LOLOL Thanks for the help............

Only 1 way to find out...

So if I have to pull the headliner down,can I get away with just taking out the two pillars and sun visors to look under the front?I don't want to pull the whole thing down unless/until I need to.

You should be able to pull the driver side A pillar (look for part of the harness) and pull down enough of the headliner to see if it's in there. You'll need to see if there is a mounting bracket in there or if the one you're trying to win comes with one. My truck came with it, but I upgraded to the better module and the longer console with sunglasses holder.

Download the factory service manual for your year, it'll have the diagrams.

ive been wanting to do this in my 03 ram. I have the smaller one but want to switch to the larger overhead console with the sunglass holder. how did you do it? do I need a whole new bracket, or will the larger one just screw right in?

I did this mod exactly.

It uses the same bracket, but instead of the screws going up through under the lenses (in the short console) they go through where the door opening is on the longer one. You WILL have to cut your headliner, so be VERY careful or you can make an expensive mistake. As a further upgrade, if you happen to stumble across part number 56045574AE, this the correct EVIC (instead of the cheapy OTIS) for the 02-05 Rams.
